The NOiG Scavenger Hunt: A Triumphant Return!

If you've been around the Nola vegan scene for a few years, you may remember that in 2014 this blog hosted a scavenger hunt in conjunction with the Nola Veggie Fest. You may also remember that it was extremely fun and offered great prizes.

Well guess what? We're doing it again! In the week leading up to the 2016 Nola Veggie Fest, NOiG will challenge you to explore your vegan city and have fun doing it!


How to play:
  • Join the Facebook event via New Orleans in Green’s Facebook page.
  • Find examples of as many of the listed items as possible, in the New Orleans metro area, in the week leading up to Veggie Fest (May 1st through 7th).
  • Take a photo. PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN! Pictures must be new (not taken before May 1st 2016), and must be yours.
  • Post your pictures in a Facebook album called “NOiG Scavenger Hunt 2016.” (You may also use Instagram or Twitter; albums aren't possible so just use the hashtags.) Tag your pic posts with #VeganNola, #NolaVeggieFest, AND #VeganHunt2016. Pics without all three of these tags will not be considered in your entry!  It's great form to also tag the place where you took the pic.
  • Comment on the event on New Orleans in Green’s Facebook page to let us know when you’ve completed your album or are otherwise ready to enter, and we'll go check it out!
**All entries must be submitted by 11:59pm EST
on Saturday, May 7th, 2016.**

Winners will be announced at Veggie Fest at the NOiG table at 1PM - be there in person if you can!!

Start planning your hunt - identifying where the items can be found, planning your route, figuring out what mini-events you can join us for, and so forth. But remember, no pics till May 1st. Good luck!  We can't wait to see what you find!
